On sale now: Thanksgiving boxes

It’s already smelling like Thanksgiving here in the Clover kitchen. Chris is busy finalizing recipes, calling farms, and building the best Thanksgiving spread in all the land.

Click here to order a Thanksgiving box for pickup or free delivery on Tuesday, November 24 or Wednesday, November 25.

Whether you’re going over the river and through the woods, or Zooming to grandmother’s house instead, our box will keep you full, happy and connected to your Massachusetts farmers. From a family-sized version of our Brussels sprout sandwich to classic mashed potatoes to cranberry sauce from our local bogs, we’ve got you covered no matter how you’re celebrating this year. 

Ordering is easy. Start with a Thanksgiving box, then add extras you can’t find in grocery stores (a build-your-own soda bar, Autumn Hills apples, a holiday breakfast kit). Choose whether you’d like to get your box on Tuesday Nov 24 or Wednesday Nov 25. 

We’ll be offering free delivery to all doorsteps inside the I-495 loop (on all orders above $60) and we’ll also be hosting pickups at CloverHUB (1075 Cambridge St in Cambridge). The deadline to order is 5pm on Sunday, Nov 22, but boxes may sell out before then.

Here’s a preview of the menu.

MAIN COURSE: 

1. Mushroom & Walnut Pâté – Ayr’s dad’s recipe is a vegetarian showpiece that carnivores love, made with Rhode Island Mushroom Co mushrooms and Grafton Cheddar. Place tray in the oven, heat, and serve.

2. Gravy – Chris makes magic happen with butter, thyme, ginger, soy, white wine vinegar, black pepper and porcini mushrooms. Warm up, pour into your gravy boat and serve over everything.

3. Mashed Mid Isle Farm Russet Potatoes – simple and delicious mashed potatoes, sourced from the best potato farms in Prince Edward Island. Place tray in oven, heat, and serve.

4. Mac and cheese – Chris’ family recipe, gooey on the inside, crisp on top, made with 1-year-aged Grafton Cheddar from Vermont. Chris advises, “yummy with a little hot sauce!”

5. Kale salad – A bit of fresh greens to cut through all the richness. We use “frostbitten” kale, harvested after the first frost so it’s sweeter than summer-harvested kale. 

6. Acorn Squash with Maple-Sriracha Butter Sauce over Wild Rice Pilaf- another showstopping favorite you may have tried in our recent Fall Box. You’ll cut local acorn squash, roast it in the oven, drizzle it with Sriracha Maple Butter sauce and serve it over wild rice.

7. Roasted Czajkowski Farm Brussels Sprouts – think of this as a family-sized version of our Brussels Sprout Sandwich! Just-harvested brussels, za’atar, pickled cabbage, toasted hazelnuts, and smoked Grafton cheddar. Place tray in oven, heat, then drizzle with Sour Cream Dijon sauce at the table. 

8. Scratch-made MA cranberry sauce – we make ours simply. Just sugar, water, and cranberries from one of our nearby bogs (e.g. Decas Farm). A little tart, a little sweet.

9. Creamy Butternut Squash Soup – local butternut squash and Michael Docter’s first harvest of carrots from Winter Moon Roots Farm. A Clover favorite. 

COCKTAIL HOUR:

Spiced mixed nuts 
Raw dipping vegetables (Michael Docter’s first harvest of carrots, Red Fire and Kitchen Garden Farm’s purple and yellow cauliflower)
Silky Organic Hummus 

DESSERT: 

9 inch Pumpkin Pie (made by our friends at Revival Cafe)

DON’T FORGET LEFTOVER SANDWICHES! 

Freshly baked Clover pita bread made with Maine Grains flour

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.

For the week of Valentine’s Day, we’ll be delivering these Making Whoopie (Pie) Kits 😉. They have everything you need to make whoopie pies — more specifically, Chris’ favorite oatmeal cakes with beet buttercream frosting. You’ll also get a scoop for making the perfect size pie, and a roll of sugar cookie dough for more sweet fun.

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I’ve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…

New Year’s Eve is no time to be buried in the kitchen, so we pack our NYE Box with Clover fan favorites that come together fast and encourage a night of Finger-Food Feasting.

Or scooping up our bright nutty Romesco sauce as the clock ticks to midnight?  And our breakthrough Carrot Lox (probably the best thing to come out of our food dev in 2023) will have you resolving to spare more salmon in the year ahead.

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will be closed Thursday 11/23 at all locations. For our kitchen team, it will be a good chance to rest after prepping a ton of Brussels casseroles for our Thanksgiving Box : ) As for the days surrounding Thanksgiving, we’ll be open normal hours, except for CloverFIN (Financial District) and CloverHSC (Harvard Science Center) which will be closed tomorrow and Friday. CloverHSQ (Harvard Square) will be closing early (at 8pm) tomorrow.
